Lately things have been a blur around our home. Days and nights are running together. And I swear the holiday season and New Years was a total blur. Next thing I know, it’s 2011; and if 2011 is anything like 2010, it’s going to be an awesome year. And the best part so far of 2011 is all the beautiful SNOW. I have a love affair with snow. I think it’s so beautiful, even if my feet go numb from standing outside for too long to watch my dogs run around and get covered in white. I’ve also been known to just stand in the window and watch the flakes come down. Now, my husband makes fun of me for this addiction – but that’s because he grew up in Canada. Who can blame a southern gal like me who runs to get milk and bread as soon as there is a five percent chance for snow. I also refuse to drive in the stuff. I would like to think that everyone appreciates this fact so that I don’t slide into them on the road.
So to celebrate all the snow we rarely get to see in the Carolinas, I thought I would post one of my new favorite pictures. It’s my neighbor’s dog named Stella but for this post, you might think her name would be snowball.
And the best part of this picture is that it was taken on my new toy (camera): The Olympus camera I got over the holidays. I love this camera so much because it not only takes awesome pictures, but it has video and really cool effects. And if you are in the market for an advance point-and-shoot, then I recommend getting one.
But enough of my rambling. (note to self – blog more, ramble less). Happy 2011 to all the readers out there. Here’s to a wonderful winter wonderland and staying warm!
